Just know that the pre-sale evaluation was of the nForce4, and didn't
take the nForce Pro 2200 and 2200+2050 designs into consideration.

E.g., the nForce Pro 2200 has 1.0GBps (2) PCI-X 1.0 channels.  Any
off-chipset NIC is typically connected to those, so there is not the same
bottleneck as a legacy 0.125GBps PCI channel like on the nForce4.
